Development Plan

The third version of the COBRA Toolbox was described in Heirendt et. al. , Creation and analysis of biochemical constraint-based models: the COBRA Toolbox v3.0, Nature Protocols, volume 14, pages 639–702, 2019 In the next few years, we shall work towards the COBRA Toolbox v4.0, where we hope to include many new tools and methods. The contribution of new tools and methods is open to everyone in the modelling community, provided that the contribution guidelines are adhered to.

All contributors of new methods shall be co-authors of the COBRA Toolbox v4.0 paper, with the order of authors decided transparently according to the magnitude of the contributions.

If you have any questions about contributing a new method, besides that already covered by the contribution guidelines, please contact the lead developer:

Ronan M.T. Fleming, Analytical BioSciences and Metabolomics, Division of Systems Biomedicine and Pharmacology, Leiden University.
